Benefits for Educators
When student math scores are reported as Quantile® measures, educators in that state have access to a set of powerful tools for accelerating student achievement. A student’s Quantile measure gives educators a close indication of their readiness to learn specific math skills and concepts, making it much easier for them to personalize learning.
For example, educators can:
- Connect students with math materials that they have the ability to understand because they’ve already mastered the underlying concepts and are ready to build on those concepts.
- Help math students at all levels, whether they’re reluctant, struggling or high-achieving.
- Determine and adjust the content of teacher-developed testing materials.
- Pre-teach needed math concepts before a new unit is introduced.
Quantile Measures as a Communications Tool
It’s often difficult to communicate student progress in math to stakeholders and constituents, especially when scores are presented on various scales. Using Quantile measures, a common scale, provides state departments of education the ability to collect and analyze data and easily report success on a state, district or even individual program level.
